Baraka Center for 3-D Experimentation

Baraka Center for 3-D Experimentation Artists working in 3-D woodcarving
apply for month long residency. Participants are given a log to Participants are encouraged to bring their own tools.

BARAKA Center for Three-Dimensional Experimentation will offer two four-week
Sculpture Residency opportunities for artists who work in the discipline of direct carving. Two artists will be invited to participate for each of the four-week sessions,
June 5-July 3 and July 17-August 14. Baraka, meaning grace and blessing in Arabic, is located on 11 acres of wooded land in New York’s
Hudson Valley, 2

hours (96 miles) north of New York City. Since 1979 Baraka has been a sanctuary
for the arts: an alternative environment for a host of unconventional exhibitions, performances
and residency programs. As a facility for three-dimensional exploration, the rustic setting, close-to-the-land living, and vivid wilderness provide fertile soil for empirical investigation into art as process. Baraka Residencies have been sustained by a community of supporters who have shared common aspirations for
art-in-community, right livelihood, and reconnection with nature. The mission of the 2016 Baraka Residency is to provide selected sculptors with time in an open,
natural environment where they can incorporate into their work the four disciplines of
philosophy, science, art, and spirituality. Preference is given to individuals inclined to engage
the “Tao of direct carving” and who strive for universality in their work. Each artist will be given a log to carve, a workspace, and access to hand and power tools. The workspace is outdoors under a canopy. Accommodations are rustic: each artist will have a private room with a bed, desk, and shelves. There is an outdoor toilet, sink, and shower as well as an indoor bathroom. Artists have access
to a shared kitchen. Evening meals are prepared family style and the residents share cleanup. Smoking is permitted outside. Wifi is available. The fee for participation is $500 per four-week residency. To receive an application or to ask more detailed information contact Baraka at:
